The 15th International Ex Tempore Painting Contest, organised by the Town of Novigrad-Cittanova Tourist Office, will traditionally take place on the second Saturday in June. This art manifestation will be divided into two categories, i.e. the contestants will be able to compete with their ex tempore works (works created on the day of the contest on the subject of "Novigrad, a place for all senses...") and with their works created over the past two years on subject of the "sea".
In terms of the ex tempore category of works created within a set period of time, the sponsors' representatives will choose three works and award them the first, second and third place prize money. They will also select the works to their liking in the category of the already existing works on the subject of the "sea" and buy them off.
The ex tempore category canvases will be sealed and the existing sea category works will be registered from 9 a.m. in the Town of Novigrad Tourist Office. All finished works must be submitted and exhibited by 4 p.m. in the heart of Novigrad, in the Irma Benčić Park which will become an inspiring setting for many artists, both from Croatia and abroad.
Most of the artists will gather and create in the green oasis of the Irma Benčić Park located right next to the sea and to the town port, the picturesque Mandrač.
After the sponsors select the award-winning works, the award ceremony will also be held in the Irma Benčić Park starting at 6 p.m.
